What are the TOP 10 run quotes by Haile Gebrselassie?

  1. I love running and I will always run.

  2. When you run the marathon, you run against the distance, not against the other runners and not against the time.

  3. When I had no shoes I was comfortable - I used to run barefoot. When I wore shoes it was difficult. To run in shoes was ok, but at the beginning of my career it was hard.

  4. When I run in Ethiopia, I look out and see eucalyptus trees and rivers.

  5. My school was six miles away from where I lived on the farm. I had to walk and run, there and back every day, through gorges and over rivers. If I was late, there was a very big stick waiting for me.

  6. Some people start a sport just to reduce weight, or some say, 'My doctor ordered me to run and do exercise', and for others, they run for completely different benefits. But it is not like that with sport. We need to eat, we need to rest, but also we need to run.

  7. At the end of the day, people want to see how fast you run.

  8. If you are a really good marathoner, you have to run New York.

  9. This is what I wanted. They tell me that London is the best field in history. I wanted to be part of that. Because everyone will be there it will be a wonderful challenge for me. You can see the best runners, how they look, how they run. For me to beat the best is what counts.

  10. What can you do if a part of it is uphill? You can't work out another route. You've just got to run the one they give you. But they tell me London is a nice course. Even the cobbles, I hope, are not very much of a problem for me.
